Swelling, fatigue & fear

Feb 16, 2013 - 0 comments

One week agho today I feel straight on my back on the concrete floor of our garage...yesterday pain persisted so I went to ER, they did x-rays and said of course osterperosis and injury do not go well together so you have swelling and muscle sprain. Ok fine and dandy... continue my morphine and started me on a week of prednisone again. I'm having lots of swelling in both hands and feet...major fatigue...my body aches so bad that I can barely turn in bed. I would like to think that I am not a wuss when it comes to pain when I have battled cancer, hysterectomy, 8 back surgeries and ms. I have been doing minor streches and alternating heat and ice on my back and of course the Gabapentin is helping with my leg pain.

In the mental health region my anger and frustration increases. I get confused and disoriented then it goes to frustration and anger!!!! I went from being depressed with anxiety and stress to possible dx of identity personality disorder. I went from not having much mental health issues to seeing a psychiatrist to having visits bi-weekly and now referred to multiple weekly visits to a therapist... What has happened to me? Going from not having answers to my insurance saying my symptoms were psychosimatic to my neurologist that dx'd me with ms just sropped my insurance so I am starting over with a new neurologist on February 28th. I guess I am a bit frustrated with the whole systom. The last year and a half have been hell! Going from working full time and hiking, hunting and camping to being wheelchair ridden and in my bed 60% of the time; not driving anymore and having episodes that get better and worse then symptoms that change all the time. Then I had a mini stroke. It has been nothing but chaos and fear and now I fear the diagnosis I have been given could all change with a new neurologist. After reading about all  the neurologists that have misdiagnosed on here I am a bit freaked out!
As always with love,
